La battaglia di Montaperti, wood engraving after the affresco "Papa Loene Magno ferma Attila" - Raffaello - Stanza di Eliodoro, Palazzo Vaticano.
"La Battaglia di Montaperti",
hand-printed wood engraving
Jacob de Gheyn II (1565-1629) Prancing horse
|Stanza di Eliodoro nel Vaticano. Incontro di Leone Magno e Attila|
starting the engraving work
The drawing is always transferred in reverse
I use a very hard sharp pencil to transfer the drawing
on the woodblock and not a pen because this
could leave light scratches on its surface
In this way I avoid to have a second layer of Carbon paper
between the photocopy and the woodblock and
I obtain thinner and more discernable lines
I use typography ink which dries very fast
and remains well fixed on the wood block

At the moment I am working on a modified copy of a drawing by Michelangelo.
I like the original drawing but my intention was to change the interpretation of
My drawing on the left hand side, the original by Michelangelo on the right.
